Chapter 1: Does Everyone Has Talent?
Everybody has talent. We are all specialists in our own areas of interest and localities, making each and every human being uniquely talented.
Also what you might not see as talent one day, might seem incredible the next. This is because our perceptions change. Therefore we are all, together, infinitely unique; that makes up a grand pool of immeasurable talent.
The answer is yes everybody has at least one talent, and it is likely that everybody has more than one talent. However most of our talents are largely undiscovered.
Whether or not somebody should work hard to get good at something or not is arguable, and can even be put down to preference. If you know you are good at something, then run with it. The only thing you would then need to work hard at is to shamelessly promote yourself. You could even get somebody else to do it for you. The more talented you are, the less promotion you would need. Demonstrate then sell.
Having difficulty discovering what you’re actually good at? Be careful. I wouldn’t ask those in my immediate vicinity for that advice. Ask somebody external to analyse you. Recruitment consultants are normally good at this.
Don’t bother working really hard at getting good at something, unless you love that something. You’ll save yourself a lot of pain.
